Illinois Federation for Right to Life Letter to Illinois House Memebers regarding HR 744

    

To: All Illinois House Members

PLEASE OPPOSE HOUSE RESOLUTION 744 (BERRIOS)

THE SO-CALLED "REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS AWARENESS WEEK" RESOLUTION TO SUPPORT UNLIMITED ABORTION

It is no coincidence that this resolution makes the week of January 22-28, 2012 [already now passed?] a so-called "Reproductive Rights Awareness Week" since January 22 is the date in 1973 that the U.S. Supreme Court made its decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton that legalized abortion throughout the full nine months of pregnancy.   

Supporting HR 744 is clearly SUPPORTING  abortions for any reason including:  

late-term partial-birth abortions

sex-selection abortions

abortions for birth control

taxpayer funding of all of these reasons and more.

And OPPOSING laws that include:  

parental notice/consent laws

informed consent for women regarding abortions

The vast majority of your constituents take an opposite view of what HR 744 stands for as listed above.

However, we would encourage House members to ask for a roll call vote if this bill were to come before the Illinois House for adoption.   

Again, Please OPPOSE and vote NO on HR 744.
